THE PIECE OF CAKE CABLE ROMPER AND HAT

The Piece of Cake Cable Romper and Hat Knitting Pattern is a lovely model that suits both boys and girls.

With this pattern you will be able to knit two pieces: the romper and the hat.

If you have never knitted cables before and want to give them a try, this is the perfect pattern for you!! All the steps are explained in detail and with lots of photos of the process.

The romper is worked flat in reverse stockinette stitch (purl on the right side and knit on the wrong side), in two pieces. It has a center basic cable pattern (which is explained in detail on the pattern) at the front and a simple rib in the chest and leg openings. The romper features straps that are buttoned up on the chest.

The hat is knitted in one flat piece from the casting on rib edge at the bottom and working towards the top in reverse stockinette stitch (purl on the right side and knit on the wrong side), where it has a soft shaping for a close fit, ending with a back seam. It has a center basic cable pattern (which is explained in detail on the pattern).

FULL INSTRUCTIONS ARE GIVEN IN THE PATTERN.

The step by step instructions have lots of photos and size colour codes to help you through your knitting project.
